Mariadb install hangs when trying to start the service

I see there was another thread here: Problem installing MySQL in Fedora 31

But is the correct answer to not use mariadb? It seems the issue was never resolved (well the issue of actually using mariadb). I’m having the same problem, when I run systemctl start mariadb it hangs and does not work.

It works for me on Fedora 33:
Fedora 33 (Desktop) Need a mediawiki install clean and simple procedure

Check the logs:

journalctl --no-pager -u mariadb.service

Turns out the VM I was using had a full hard drive!

Unfortunately nothing in journalctl or mariadb initialization complained about that. Though rare, seems that would be a pretty good log item for them to add :slight_smile:
